As they did 2012.

Before the KLM Open in the Netherlands, Martin Kaymer declared that he isn't working with Connelly anymore.

Kaymer is in a real crisis and slipped to No. 146 in the world.

Is the caddie really the reason for that? I don't think so.

I think that Connelly is a very good caddy. He will have a bag very soon. Which player needs a guy like Connelly?

As far as I know he hasn't attributed his drop in the ranking to the fault of the caddy. Parting ways doesn't mean he is blaming the caddy.

I agree that he will find a bag quickly, Casey hired quickly the last time.

Yeah, Kaymer didn't blame Craig at all (he is way too classy for that).

It was more a general question: Can a caddy-change help your game when you are in a real big slump. I mean, the caddy isn't hitting the shots.

I'm not going to say caddies aren't important.  They are.  They're part psych, part best friend, part confidant, part whatever.  They're there to keep the player focused or not.  But they don't hit any shots.  So if Martin doesn't think his guy gives him what he needs to hear or see on the course, then you part ways and look for another loop.

It strange because his stats have hardly changed in the last 8 seasons. I don’t know if he use to just have 2 or 3 good weeks per season when he was winning.

He’s had a decent start thus week. Maybe he got too technical, wouldn’t be the first.

Perhaps this presents an opportunity for Rory to get a “real” caddy instead of his drinking buddy.

Adam did say that if he trusted his own read of the putt on 10 at Augusta and not Stevie's he would not have made the putt to win the Masters...so, there's that.

Kaymer wasn't in a slump when he won the 2010 PGA.
